Motivation Monday #37

Another Monday, how do you plan on starting your week?
What better way to kick of the week than by being productive?

Get stuff done today! Have a cup of coffee and make a list of all the things that you want to accomplish. As I have said in the past, making lists can be SUPER helpful. There’s so much going on in our daily lives that it can’t hurt to have a few written reminders lying around.

The more you do, the better you will feel by the end of the day. With less to worry about you’ll be able to enjoy a stress-free evening!

Now go tackle your Monday!

Motivation Monday #19

Happy Monday! I hope all of the moms out there had a special day being celebrated yesterday. I had a lot of fun at a Mother’s day brunch with my mom, grandma and aunt. It’s always a good time when I’m surrounded by family.

Although it was a great day, I totally over-indulged at the brunch and ate way more than I should have. I can never say no to sweets! And that cheesecake was staring at me. From eating so many delicious desserts, I felt way too disgusting to even think about working out.

As the day was coming to an end I felt guilty for not treating my body with better care. So I made a list of things that I would like to try to do every day, and I wrote them out on the mirror in my room (with an expo marker) as a daily reminder.

This way, I will wake up each day with a clear reminder of what I need to do to have a happy life. Here’s what mine looks like:

( I started with a quote) “Wake up. Work Hard. Be Kind. Go to sleep”

  • Don’t stress the small stuff
  • Workout
  • Read books
  • Drink more water and green tea
  • Pray everyday!!!
  • Cook and Clean (AKA stop spending money at restaurants!)
  • Not too much caffeine
  • Smile often 🙂
  • Spend lots of time with family & friends

I know I have said it before but I love to be organized, part of that quality means that I am constantly making LISTS! I love having a visual to remind myself what I need to do. Use this Monday to make a list of your own, it may not look exactly like mine but thats ok. Just jot down the things that make you happy (or things that you NEED to get done) and make time to do them!

Have a fantastic week!! XOXO
